Bahan Alkitab: Luke 5:1-11
Simon Peter knew fishing very well. He had fished in the Sea of Galilee all his life. He knew where the fish were (he thought he did). He was exhausted from fishing all night and catching nothing. Then Jesus told Peter to go out into deep water and let down the fishing nets. He OBEYED, by saying ” Master, we have worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything, but because you say so, I will let down the nets.
Peter’s response to their overflowing nets of fish was to fall at Jesus feet and say “Go away from me, Lord, I am a sinful man!” (Peter confessing his sinfulness).
Jesus reveal himself as more than a mere man. He was the Son of God. He is the creator. Peter was overwhelmed by Jesus deity, authority and power.
Jesus call peter to follow Him. Jesus also call us to follow Him. He wants us to follow Him, right where we are. He is looking at our heart. We just have to Trust Him and Obey Him.
